What impressed you negatively?

"The tour - Apparently there is no designated route for the tour, and our student guide did not give much thought as to what we should see. Many of the rooms he attempted to show us were either locked or being used by other students. We just ended up roaming around the quadrangle until the end of the tour.

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I was surprised by how close knit the students were. Most of the first year students live together in a dorm on campus. This living situation seems to foster a great deal of class unity." -Posted 12/12/2006 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, it was a good experience. I found the students to be very friendly and interesting. The admissions staff seemed a little arrogant with respect to the school's reputation and ''hands-off'' with respect to the applicants. We received almost no guidance finding our way from the admissions office to our interviews. The interviewers had obviously read my application and seemed knowledgable of what I had done during college." -Posted 12/12/2006 | Report Response
